I don’t know about you but I’m glad that there’s a little something for me in the midst of all this back-to-school shopping! I have a high-schooler and a middle-schooler this year and between the backpacks, notebooks, binders, new clothes and the equipment for Fall sports I was feeling a little left out of all the shopping fun. The good news is I can add a few great yarns to my stash, get a jump start on holiday gift projects and not have to pay for shipping!

Chilly Autumn days are just around the corner and we have some great yarns in our End of Summer sale perfect for working up chunky, last minute accessories and garments.

Plymouth Yarns Sophia Tweed in the WEBS End of Summer Sale, until Aug. 22, 2015 at yarn.com Great for quick knit, crochet or woven accessories! Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

Plymouth Sophia Tweed not only has great color, but amazing texture as well. A lightly spun single of wool and acrylic is wrapped with a rayon thread for a thick and thin yarn with so much color! This yarn could be worked on smaller needles at a worsted gauge for a dense fabric or loose and light for bulky scarves and hats with lots of warmth but not a lot of weight. I even wove up a scarf on my cricket loom, I used a 5 dent reed, and it only took me 2 hours! 3 skeins would easily make two 60″ plainweave scarves, not bad for just under $21.

grandiosa

Grandiosa is a beautiful super bulky, wool and alpaca blend in hand dyed colors. Not only would this make super cozy accessories but great little sweaters, too.

deaire

If you’re looking for a bulky yarn that doesn’t weigh down your knitting then Plymouth DeAire is the yarn you’re looking for! With an I-cord construction there’s lots of air in this yarn giving you tons of warmth without the weight. It even knits up into wonderful blankets, like this one that only uses 9 skeins, less than $80 for that whole project!

Do you have a favorite go-to project for bulky yarn?

Cone Cornucopia!

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Greetings from the Weaving Room! We received a shipment of mill end cones this week and I am having trouble concentrating on my job. This is what happens when you work in the candy shop of the fiber world. I keep making ‘detours’ as I walk through the warehouse and find myself standing in front of these lovelies. My desk is filling with cones in different color groupings, adorned with sticky notes listing yardages, setts and calculations for projects.

It’s always a heady atmosphere when we get mill ends because they are so hard to come by these days. I have 2 coping strategies, but unfortunately they directly contradict each other so I only have a 50-50 chance of getting it right. The first one says – ‘surround yourself with the beautiful colors and feels, give it a few days and maybe you’ll realize that as much as you love it you’re never going to get to that project.’ This strategy has saved many a paycheck (and also led to a few regrets). The second theory goes – ‘this color/hand is stunningly awesome and it’s going to go really fast and if you don’t grab it now it will be gone forever.’ This has led to my embarrassingly large stash and membership in Hoarders’ Anonymous (and some great finds at the year-end guild auctions).

But enough about me! You really just want to know what’s back in that warehouse, right? Okay, this is what we got:

Mill End cones on sale at WEBS - more on the WEBS Blog, blog.yarn.com

 4.1nm Cotton Viscose Mill End is a delightful blend, with a thick & thin cotton core wrapped with viscose. The viscose gives it a beautiful sheen and the varied thickness will add great texture to your weaving.

$12.99 by the cone, full cones only. Cones weigh approximately .55 lb., with ~1320 yards.

30s Yorkshire Wool Mill End on 250g cones is a finely spun, 100% wool, single ply weaving yarn with a spectacular range of colors including some rich, heathery shades. The fine weight will weave up into beautiful yardage for garments as well as lightweight throws, blankets and more.

9.4nm Wool Nylon Mill End 250g weaving yarn is a springy, tightly spun blend of wool with a little nylon. It has great texture – almost like a bouclé – and is available in a lovely array of colors. We see this working as a wonderful weft yarn, used alone or in combination with other yarns. Use as warp only with great care as it’s rather stretchy. Always weave a sample before starting a project. 93% wool/7% nylon. 56 colors.

It’s got a zig-zaggy texture throughout, with variations in thickness, almost like a flake. Recommended sett is 16-24 epi, but remember to always weave a swatch before beginning your project. 40+ colors

$12.99 by the cone, full cones only. Cones weigh approximately .55 lb., with ~957 yards.

The two wools have me thinking of yardage for a winter coat, while the 3.5nm cotton is jumping up and down, begging to be combined with an 8/2 or 6/2 cotton for textured snuggly baby blankets. What can you see weaving with these yarns?
